Once you’ve paid a visit to Lowestoft (if you haven’t already been) you will understand why it’s one of the most popular coastal towns in the region. When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, there’s no better place to be than Lowestoft’s sandy shores. The stretch of coastline here is soft & golden and offers plenty of space for everyone to enjoy a great day on the beach. There are donkey rides that the smaller kids will love & we’re sure you’ll love Claremont Pier, which offers a wealth of entertainment for both adults & kids. When the weather isn’t so warm, you can still enjoy a relaxing walk along the sea front & savour the refreshing sea breeze. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, take a stroll into the town centre and try out one of the restaurants here that serve freshly cooked meals to order.
